Apple Turnover

This is just as tasty as the store bought version, but so much healthier.  Dessert without any guilt!  How cool is that?

 Ingredients:

1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
1 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
4 Apples
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground ginger
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
Juice of 1 lemon
1 egg white, lightly beaten

Preparation:

Generously flour work surface.  Roll puff pasty into a 9″x15″ rectangle.  Cut the pastry into 6 equal squares.  Refrigerate until needed
In large saucepan, bring water and sugar to a boil.  Peel & core apples; cut into 1/2″ chunks.  Toss apples with cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and lemon juice; add apples to sugar mixture and simmer until liquid thickens, 5 to 7 minutes.  Set aside to cool.

Preheat the oven to 425°F.  When apple mixture cools, spoon 2 -3 tablespoons of apples on to  pastry squares, off center.  Fold pastry over filling and seal edges by pressing fork tines into dough.
Place turnovers on backing sheet and brush with lightly beaten egg white.  Bake until dough is crispy and golden brown, 12 – 15 minutes.

Dust with powdered sugar and enjoy!
